Use simplexml http://www.php.net/simplexml and proceed along these lines

<?php

$data = '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

But its not working please let me know where i am wrong
$doc = new DOMDocument();
$doc->load( $xml );

//$books1 = $doc->getElementsByTagName( "clientApplication" );


$books = $books1->getElementsByTagName( "application" );
   foreach( $books as $book )
    {
	$authors = $book->getElementsByTagName( "clients" );
	$author = $authors->item(0)->nodeValue;

	$publishers = $book->getElementsByTagName( "client_application_id" );
	$publisher = $publishers->item(0)->nodeValue;

	$titles = $book->getElementsByTagName( "client_id" );
	$title = $titles->item(0)->nodeValue;

Hi,
thx @bportlock

and thx to all even i will try other method too.

it was perfect anwer what i wanted.
But actually i would not have actual name of the xml tag similar to application->clients.
Actually its converted to xml from numerative array and later it has to be again converted to array.
So, how to get tag name which is been developed from such type of array.
' <application><clients>........ </clients></application>'. was the actual example of it.

You could combine my script with what SimonDard suggested


foreach( $xml->children() as $name => $data ) {
     echo "$name $data<br/>";
}

This will print out values and the names of the XML elements, but the whole point of an XML document is that they have a defined structure that you can use to navigate. If someone is making up these XML files on a willy-nilly basis and expecting you to process anything they send, then you're in for a bad time.
